Wedding in Hawaii!! "Pony cousin in training!"

I've been MIA for a while because we were prepping, packing and getting ready for our sons wedding in Maui!  We are very happy to welcome our new daughter in law and her 7 yr. old son (Tyler) into our family.

She and my son met at a fundraiser about 1 1/2 years ago.  Although, as it turns out, my husband went to school with both of her parents.
They make a great couple,  she is the balance to his personality.  Our son is crazy about her!
It's so nice to finally see him THIS happy.

I love how she seems to love his kids as her own and she does her very best to make everything fair.  It can't be easy for her, as they now have between them, THREE 7 yr. olds!

Here she is giving Avaa, Mels 7 yr. old daughter a piggy back ride back to the car after a long walk we took.

We had a Bridal Shower for her family and friends just prior to going to Hawaii.  She loves flip flops, so of course, I made her a "flip-flop" cake!

So, we all flew off to Hawaii together, and I can honestly say this was THE BEST vacation we've ever had!  SOOOO relaxing, nice warm weather, and THE SNORKELING  was the best I've ever experienced!  (If you wanna know what you'd look like with puffed lips? Try snorkeling for hours!)   I think we saw every kind of fish.
But, of course, the highlight of the trip was the beautiful wedding Mel and Sherylee had.  Very romantic, and everything seemed to just flow without a bump.

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy.

Here are the hats I got them to wear on the plane....Did they look excited? Ha!

Our first Mai Tai's after finally getting there and settling into our hotels.

And now, I'll just post several of the pictures and a couple videos,for you to just sit back and enjoy!

Fresh, Double Orchid leis for everyone, and a bottle of ice cold water with customized labels.
Mels good friend Keith, who he worked with at Columbia.  Also a pilot.

 Me and my very happy boy!

 An absolutely beautiful couple!  We enjoyed Keith and Lori so much!

We have many more pictures, but I won't make you look at ALL of them! hee! hee!
And here are a few of our week fun....after the wedding.
 Sherylee's mom and sister....

 Someone pooped out at the Luau!....

 Connor was too embarrassed to go up and get his picture taken with the dancers, but Mike told him...."Come on buddy, you'll be glad you did this when your in Junior high school!  LOL
 After an evening of Luau, we took a walk on the beach to enjoy our last night there.
 Then we ended up at the Pool and we were all sitting around whining that we had to go home tomorrow and the next thing I know, the guys were jumping in the pool, clothes and all!  Well, we pony girls will not miss out on anything like that, we went!  What a fun memory to finish off the week.
